BOOK REVIEW: Losing Ground: A Willow Short Story by Alice Rachel

Hello there bibliobears!!!

I am back again with a book review. This is going to be a short book review, so please bear with me.


Title: Losing Ground: A Willow Short Story

Author: Alice Rachel

Format: Paperback (review copy)

Genre: Dystopia, Romance, Young Adult

Started: December 5, 2016

Finished: December 5, 2016



The day Willow met Chi for the first time was the day her heart broke, the day she betrayed the one boy she had ever loved, the day she made a decision that could never be undone.


This one hell of a novella. It helped me see things in Willow’s point of view but it really annoyed the hell out of me. But don’t get me wrong, I love the author’s works. It just the fact that Willow is really annoying. She so easy to manipulate. It seems that she can’t do things on her own. And when she decides to do things on her own, it would be too late for her or for anyone. She can’t seem to make up her mind. She keeps doubting herself, making her seem weak–to be honest, she is.

The plot is great, I’ll give her that. (I love the entire plot of all Ms. Alice books). The main character of this novella is… [refer to the first paragraph]. The side character, though, were great. Stephen and Chi, both of them are great. But Stephen would be on top.

The world building is on point, in my own opinion. It was easy to get into it because I have read the other books already.

This book didn’t give much feels. Everything I felt while reading it was negative. Willow’s too annoying.

The writing style of Ms. Alice is on point, as well. It is so easy to understand the whole story. Her writing style is the reason why I am so into the book.

Hi there bibliophiles! I'm Rosemarie and a proud Filipina. I've been into reading since I was in grade school and I started collecting books just recently. The first series that I've read and finished is The Twilight Saga. I started this blog because I want to share my love for books through talking everything I could think of. As of now, I'm still exploring other topics to talk about. I want to write about my adventures but I don't know how to make it look so cool and entertaining. But lemme know what you think about that and I might just try to work that out.
